Moose comes to town
Tuesday, October 15, 2013 2:07 PM

Over the past week, a number of readers have reported the sighting a young bull moose in the Iron River area. The moose was taking a stroll down Lalley Road past the Secretary of State DMV office when Amy Johnson spotted him and snapped a photo. He may have been getting his on-road permit, being that he’s been doing a lot of traveling. He was also seen at the home of Dan Harper on Old Beechwood Road in Iron River Township as well as numerous other locations. The moose was seen in town on Monday and by Wednesday was heading west.
